We often forget that OPERATING WITH SIGNS IS NOT A SIGN. Calling a name is not a name, uttering a sentence is not a sentence.

Modern man, Western man has defined himself as a machine. Machine has been the ideal of the Western man, and he has really tried to become a machine, to act as a machine, to replace himself with a machine wherever it possible. In some important aspects, the history of the Western civilization has been the history of a gradual evolution of man into machine, gradual formalization, algorithmization of human intellectual activity, even technical, scientific and artistic creation. A great part of modern art is already made, generated by theories and algorithms. Artist has evolved into art theorist and art theorist into algorithm-maker, program-maker. Their effort is directed toward creating an art-creating machine.
